AAA challenge

Time again to play in the AAA challenge and this time it is : make a shaker card. I wanted to make a special card anyhow for my sister's BIG birthday. I love the inspiration picture and a card was born!


I took the Papertrey numbers and die cut my card stock. Attached acetate behind and foam tape around the numbers. I first had some thicker foam tape, but all the sequins basically disappeared in a small clump when holding the card upright....so I disassembled it and took thinner foam tape - looks like a lot more sequins all of a sudden... 


I heat embossed the sentiment in silver (Neat&Tangled - Across the card), to match the inspiration photo and added silver string with a brad and beads. Since all the beads were just lumping up when the card was upright and didn't look like anything I attached tiny drops of glossy accents to make them stay where they are....


I am also playing with this card at Less is More - Anything Goes
and I am  linking this card with the Snippets Playground - use a snippet (the pink background behind the numbers is one)

Hey, we're neighbors at AAA! Love how you used the silver and don't ya just love beads added to a card. Especially when it doesn't have to go through the mail.

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
